    Default Wednesday Roll Call, 10/19

    Good Wednesday Morning
    I am SURE this is Wednesday.
    I think....
    DH went to work. YIPPEEEEEE
    Thank goodness.
    Full house of littles today. My busiest day for preschool and crafts.
    Trying to clean up the mess from DH being home for 2 days. How can 1 man make so much mess.

    Goal today: Tackle that kitchen table pile.

    Have a WONDERFUL Wednesday.

    I just realized I haven't checked the board in awhile. I think I completely missed Tuesday. Today I'm hoping to do a full normal schedule of school and get some laundry done.
    I'm also thinking about getting the ink out and either working on something for the sale or just playing in my sketchbook. Still haven't tried out that one experiment. I'm not sure if I just want to resketch the same photo in the sketchbook and try out the watercolor/charcoal combo in there first or just go for it on the regular paper. If ti works out well I have another piece for the sale, and I don't have to recreate anything.

    DH will be coming home today!! He's been on a business trip since Sunday, so it will be nice to have him home.

    Swam my laps this morning. Taking it easy in terms of exercise the next two days in preparation for our half marathon Saturday morning at Purdue. I'll probably just do some stretching. Son is running the last 2 miles with me (route goes right past his dorm at mile 11), so that's worth it right there. My injured foot will probably be screaming in pain when I'm done, but I already have made an appointment with the doctor for midweek next week.

    Tutoring a few times today--algebra II, precalculus, and geometry. At least I get to shift gears. When I taught I could never be one of those teachers who taught the exact same thing 4-7 times a day. Although I must admit that the year I taught 5 different classes in 6 different classrooms was a little rough (try teaching advanced physics in the teacher's lounge). I also had a newborn and was pregnant with the second at the time. Things DO get easier!!

    Homeschool algebra class is going well. We're headed into week 7 with tomorrow's class. They all seem to be getting it, and more than anything I'm loving the increased math confidence they all seem to be exhibiting.

    You all have a great day!

    Doing my sporadic checking in today. lol. We still haven't started back to school work since we paused to move over a month ago. Partly me being lazy and partly it taking us a lot longer to unpack and settle into our new house since my husband forgot to take leave from work. It's super easy to unpack boxes with three kids underfoot when the toddler likes to repack for you!

    UGH. Oldest DS aka the most opinionated, the most mouthy AND the least self-sufficient child of mine has received a jury notice today.... for the Monday of Thanksgiving week. The worst week.
    After the tirade and the talk, he filled it out. Now DH will take him several times on the bus to make sure he knows where to go and what bus to ride.

    I hope your foot survives, INMOM.

    And hi AlwaysSmile, and RBM .

    And A&W yuck jury duty. Cant he say he lacks transportation to get there?

    I caught the baby's cold... so wasnt in the mood for much today.
    Picked up DS from his half day at the charter, stopped at megamart for frozen entree for dinner thinking I was making it easy on myself. (Also got a lot of ice cream desserts because "it would make my throat feel better".)
    4pm rolled around, I got out of bed, vaguely read the directions which involved cutting slit in film on top of casserole and an oven temperature.

    Came back at dinner time, saw melted plastic on the food. Read box instructions. Cut slit was for the microwave directions, not oven directions. Well, I wasnt that hungry anyways.
    So I picked off the slivers of melted plastic, told hubby dinner was ready.
    He saw the plastic wrap where it was melted on the side of the cardboard container. "Thats melted plastic on top there." (Pointing at middle of dish.)
    "No hon, thats cheese." (It didnt seem prudent to mention that the melted plastic looked like long slivers of glass, and several were in the trash.)
    He checked the fridge, presumably for other edibles.
    "How bout you go to Sonic?" He suggested.
    I didnt argue.

    Chili cheese tater tots are yummier than Amys Organic Frozen then cooked with plastic Mexican Casserole anyways.

    AWWW Poor AM! Cold's suck!

    A&W, jury duty SUCKS! I got my first call for it this year. It was boring as all hell. Our realtor had it Monday (was that ever a fun day for us). And DH home again? What fun!

    Today we painted over my old desk to be my husband's new desk in the new house. From lavender and purple to black and grey. Looks pretty. Tech loves to paint.

    Closing is possibly happening tomorrow. At this point, I'll believe it's going to happen when DH calls that he's got the keys in hand and has signed the paperwork officially. Until then, well, confidence levels are not high.

    The last time I got a summons for jury duty I asked my doctor to write a note to get me out of it, because of my anxiety. She didn't seem happy about it but did it anyway. I probably would have had a panic attack while there anyway, so it's not like I was just trying to avoid it. I had enough anxiety over the possibility.

    DS is directionally challenged. He just learned our address at 18/19. And mainly because it is on his State ID card. I don't know if it is the ADHD or what.
    We do think he has some TBI. He was a head bonker. Tried Lara Croft eagle dive a couple times onto concrete floors, tripped into coffee table. Has actual bone damage on his forehead from repeatedly hitting spot.
    Anyways.... this will be a challenge for him. Not only bus ride, but getting into courthouse alone, following directions, NOT going off on tangent when they ask something, then riding bus home and getting off at right spot. I know I will be stressed the whole day. At least he will have practiced with Dad AND has his cell with him.
    If it were youngest DS, no problem. He wouldn't like it but I don't worry about him. As we tell him, when we die.... you are in charge of your brother.
    Perfect example yesterday. Oldest DS gets jury summons because he is an adult. An hour later he is outside and has found a grasshopper and is trying to catch it(he did). Adult in an adult body(he is 6'5" tall) but still LOTS of kid left in that brain. Which is good..... and not.

    And it doesn't help that it is Thanksgiving week. Which has already become a CHAOS week that I am dreading. Now... he might have to stay home with Dad while brother and I head to CA.
